of these earlier and more simple societies. archaeologist william sanders. a commonly held notion among the public at large and also among some of my anthropological colleagues is that non-western peoples live in harmony with nature, that they have relatively stable environmental relationships. what archaeology teaches us is that that's not true. keach: in the new world, human beings appeared for the first time more than 10,000 years before the birth of christ. over the millennia, grand city-states emerged in the tropics of mexico, guatemala and honduras. this is the realm of the ancient maya. they built magnificent cities and peopled them with the portraits of their kings. these are the ruins of copan in honduras. the mystery of the rise and fall of these maya kingdoms has fascinated archaeologists for centuries. it is a puzzle presented in 1839 by the words and etchings of explorers frederick catherwood and john stephens. "architecture, sculpture and painting, "all the arts which embellish life "had flourished in this overgrown forest. "the city was desolate. "it lay before us like a shattered b

roger cressy. live in watertown, we were listening together as kerry sanders was moved further and further back. what are you seeing? >> he is a few blocks away from here, but we are not hearing anything that he is hearing. it's quiet in this part of watertown. the helicopter that had been circling for the past few hours is no longer here. we have seen tactical units leave and others come back in. we haven't seen anything like kerry has been seeing a few blocks away from where we are standing. we don't want to give away too much because the police asked that we don't give out tactical information, but we are going on hour ten of a lockdown. people are not outside. maybe all of four or five residents come around to the area. that's very unusual whenever there is a media staging area people ask what is going on. we have seen none of that. people are heeding the warnings to stay inside. police have been going from door-to-door trying to see if they can find suspect number two, the guy in the white hat. if he is hiding out here, there is suspicion he s. the entire area of boston is

into rich and poor, as our human relationships became ever more complex. archaeologist william sanders. i think all human societies are the product of a process of cultural evolution. in general, this evolution leads to an increase in the size of societies, an increase in the complexity of their interaction and institutions. it also leads to more economic interdependence among households within a society, and among societies. keach: to trace the evolution of human societies in the new world, an archaeological team comes here to mexico's tehuacan valley. the team is led by veteran archaeologist scotty macneish. they are seeking evidence of the first inhabitants of the valley. when macneish first excavated here in 1962, he discovered a time capsule of human occupation at a site called purron cave. macneish: here we are back at purron cave. we really haven't dug in it in almost 30 years. walls all preserved. even the trowel marks we made to mark off strata are still preserved and we have all sorts of neat floors of charcoal one on top of the other. the amazing thing about this cave is that w

. más a usted... cinco centímetros. keach: archaeologist william sanders has been leading excavations in the copan valley since 1980. sanders: we decided to do a series of large-scale excavations out in the countryside to get an idea what the farming population was like. what kind of houses did they live in ? what was their lifestyle like ? probably 80% of the population of copan was in that social category. keach: unlike ceren, the ancient houses of copan had been exposed to centuries of erosion. very few artifacts remained intact or in their original location. still the team finds significant clues. in one structure, the team discovers a razed platform of stone, the remnants of a sleeping bench. in another, they find evidence for a kitchen -- shattered obsidian blades that once were knives and broken pieces of pottery that were once used for cooking. the layout of ancient maya houses is quite different from our own. the maya constructed separate buildings for sleeping, cooking and storing food. they organized these buildings around patios. after two seasons of work up here, what can

we want to get to nbc's kerry sanders. he's in the boston suburb of watertown where a lot of this has been taking place. good morning to you. please bring us up to date. >> good morning. we are in a neighborhood where we are about four to five blocks from where it is believed the suspect maybe holed up. there has been back and forth, ebb and flow of very high-energy activity and moments of complete lulls. i've seen, after the arrival of a tremendous number of members of the military, as well as those from the state police moving in, s.w.a.t. team, i have seen sort of a trickle out of some of those taking their place. i think what's going on is those that have the high energy of the actual tactical approach to ferret out one person who maybe holed up in there and everyone else is extract sod there is not cross friendly fire or anything like that. we saw the atf come in a few moments ago with yet another vehicle. that's because when i was in the neighborhood earlier. i was there overnight there were two devices found. they didn't call them bombs but treated them as if they c
